When Steve Jobs tested the first iPod prototype he said "This feeld like crap!", Mike Evangelist writes on his blog.

Evangelist, former director of video product marketing at Apple, says the headphones were the problem:
“This feels like crap!” Steve growled at the engineer from the industrial design department. He repeatedly plugged and unplugged the headphones from the pre-production iPod and looked as if he might fling it across the room. “...these headphone jacks all have to be replaced by tomorrow” he continued.
